Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
About me: I like coffee, NPR, trying different beers and whiskeys,
cheesy 80's music, and sushi. I also enjoy going to the gym,
playing tennis, and going for bike rides (I have a Trek that's like
my best friend!). There's nothing I enjoy more than losing myself
in a good book or movie, or perhaps researching something in depth
on the internet.
In terms of my match, I don't have a type, but I hope to meet a
genuinely nice person. What impresses me the most is a SMART woman
who is down-to-earth, practical, and who leads a balanced life - I
need to be attracted to more than just appearances! Also, it would
be nice if I could meet someone who is capable of doing more than
just going to bars and baseball games (not that there's anything
wrong with those things, but there is more to experience in life).
Now that I'm getting older I'm taking a more active interest in
meeting women and I can't imagine not having someone to be romantic
with - I just don't feel that life would be complete without
As for me, I have a reliable car and a good job with benefits, and
I live on my own. I've been very busy establishing a career. Now
that I've finally found my place in life, it really feels like
something is missing. After meeting many women who really aren't my
type, I'd like to meet a woman who is ready to be in a
relationship! I feel like I've missed out on so many things, but
I'd rather be with the one who's right for me than selling out (I
regret not seizing that opportunity - don't ask!).
I CAN'T SEE WHO "LIKES" ME, SO PLEASE DON'T "LIKE" ME AND HOPE THAT
I WILL RESPOND. YOU MUST E-MAIL ME!!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an investment analyst (...in institutional investing, not
retail investing), and when I'm not working I study for the CFA
exam. I occasionally hobnob with CEOs, hedge fund managers, high
ranking government officials, and the like. All that highfalutin
business doesn't impress me very much, nor am I a money obsessed
psychopath - it's the little things in life that matter the
In my free time, I'm really into trying different beers and
whiskeys (...but I'm just a social drinker). If the weather is nice
after work then I usually go for a little bike ride or hit the gym.
One of my guilty pleasures is watching House Hunters International.
You can buy a mansion in South America for the cost of a condo, but
risk being kidnapped and ransomed.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get good comments on my teeth and hair. I have also been accused
of being a "handsome prick"!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I like non-fiction books. Yes, I do read books that aren't
on the list of readings from senior year of high school! But I
liked The Great Gatsby, which led me to reading everything
Movies: Catch Me If You Can, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,
Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Lost in Translation, Meet the Parents,
anything with Adam Sandler, Her.
Shows: I don't really have any TV shows that I watch regularly, but
I was a huge LOST fan while it was on. I recently discovered
Silicon Valley. I also like Pawn Stars, Flip or Flop, and House
Music: I just listen to whatever is on the radio (which is usually
tuned to NPR), and I love 80's music - with a huge collection to
prove it! I'm a big fan of Sublime, 311, and Red Hot Chili
Food: Chinese Food, sushi, mushroom pizza, Sam Adams beer, dark
chocolate, salsa, Mexican food. I'm turning into a beer snob.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Internet, food, coffee, my comfy bed (I take sleep seriously - 300
thread count sheets, down comforter, plush top bed, etc.),
interesting books, my Chrysler 200 (smoothest thing on wheels!).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How/when/where I will meet the one for me...it could be someone in
line at the supermarket, sitting next to me on a plane, or some
other way. So, I'm romantic, but have yet to meet someone to
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching some corny movie on TV while sipping some beer. Basically
I'm trying to relax from a hectic week.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're PETITE, smart, and not terribly out of shape. I know that
sounds a bit picky, but I wished people would understand this: I'm
not a very big man! Having an active interest in coffee, good beer,
dark chocolate, and sushi wouldn't hurt.
If I pique your interest, send me an e-mail. I'm sorry that I
probably don't live in the SAME exact city or town as you - it's a
big world! From the way women treat even minor distances, one would
think that people don't drive or take public transportation. If you
can't be patient to travel just a bit outside your comfort zone,
how are you going to cope with being in a relationship?!?
I realize my profile is a bit sarcastic. I'm just trying to be
entertaining while I have your attention, especially for the people
who think that being boring is the worst...which isn't true at all!
I've been to hell and back and it's not having a sense of humor.
